I first visited the Speaker in Westminster in the late Summer of 2009 during a St James’s Park pub crawl. But I hadn’t been back for a few months and I recently had a welcome return.
The pub is fairly small inside and because of its popularity there are invariably plenty of people standing on the pavement outside – even when it’s raining.
On the bar at the Speaker there are 4 handpumps and the beer selection on 2 of the pumps changes regularly. Dennis (the publican) likes to embrace themes and he runs regular beer festival lists. The selections can be seasonal – the list might be full of mild for May. Every time I’ve drunk here the beer quality has been superb. It’s not surprising that it’s in the Good Beer Guide.
Reasonably priced food is available too – I believe up until 9:30pm each day. The Speaker is open from midday to 11:00pm Monday to Friday – note, not unfortunately at weekends.
This pub is a gem and is well worth searching out – even though its a little stuck in between tube stations. It’s not far from the excellent Cask Pub & Kitchen in nearby Pimlico
